This Colt 1860 Army truly has everything on a collector’s wish list: early serial number, fluted cylinder, rare early barrel, factory mahogany case, superb accessories, and is the highest condition example we’ve ever had the privilege to offer.
Colt 1860 Army revolvers with fluted cylinders were only in the early stages of production, and this 3-digit serial number certainly qualifies. The fluted cylinders are scarcely seen with anywhere between 4,000-6,000 ever produced. Rarer still is the early production 7.5-inch barrel with only 2,800 made. Housed in its factory case filled with high condition accessories and you have a Colt 1860 Army at the top of its field.
